it in front of 40 million people. [ laughter ] >> obama: four years ago we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost the auto industry was on the brink of collapse the financial system has frozen up and because of the resilience and determination of the american people we have begun to fight our way back. we have seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back and house has begun to rise. but we all know we still have a lot of work to do. so the question is not where we have been but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed towards the wealthy and roll back regulations, that we'll be better off. i have a different view. i think we have got to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure we're helping small businesses and companies here in the united states, that we take some of the money we're saving as we wind down tw
as president obama. he's been vice president in for four years. had a lot of things going. been a long time since he's debated. paul ryan has been in the cut and thrust of congress, to be better prepared. however, ryan is in the shoes president obama was in last night and the expectations are high for ryan. i think most people feel that paul ryan will walk joe biden's dog in this debate, and that's a down for him. i would venture that the vice presidential debate may get the largest audience of any vice presidential de debate we've had so far. >> in 2008 with the introduction of sarah palin was the first time the vice presidential debate was ever the highest 01:39:43:rate ed debate. we have this again. >> governor romney, last night, people say he mangled the truth to put it gently. the obama campaign -- they did a smart thing today. got up bright and early this morning realizing they took a loss last night and began pointing out where governor romney had not said what he said before, had not stuck to the truth. however, we learned again last night, if we needed reminding, that there's powe
. obama: that's what we've done. romney: you've been president four years. you've been president four years. you said you'd cut the deficit in half. the cbo says we'll have a trillion dollar deficit each of the next four years, if you're reelected, we'll get to a trillion dollar debt. you have said before you'd cut the cef sit in half, and i love this idea of $4 trillion in cuts, getting closer to a balanced budget, except we still show trillion dollar deficits every year. that doesn't get the job done. let me come back and say why is it that i don't want to raise taxes. why don't i want to raise taxes on people? and actually you said it back in 2010, you said, look, i'm going to extend the tax policies that we have now, i'm not going to raise taxes on anyone because when the economy's growing slow like this, when we're in recession, you shouldn't raise taxes on anyone. well, the economy is still growing slow. as a matter of fact, it's growing much more slowly now than when you made that statement. and so if you believe the same thing, you just don't want to raise taxes on people. and
us, diana. >>> six in ten asian american voters voted for president obama in 2008, but this year with the economy front and center, some are reconsidering. so if just a small percent of the country's asian population go with governor mitt romney, could they actually swing the election? it depends on which state wii talking about. msnbc's richard lui has more from the critical swing state of virginia. >> i just don't know who's going to be able to kind of get to that middle ground, when the time comes. >> reporter: yet his vote could count most. it's because he is in virginia, one of a hand full of states up for grabs in the election. and as is said, as swing states go, so goes the election. 100% of them have been negative. >> reporter: in haresh's case, he voted for president obama in 2008, the first year a democrat won virginia since 1964. another reason his vote is valuable to candidate, he's asian american, and because of that, four times more likely to be an undecided voter, according to a new study. that group also makes campaign donations at a rate only second to whites. >>
directly to the american people without the filter. telling them about his plan for the next four years. >> obama advisers are also spending. reminding voters that the president's day drop has interfered with practice sessions. both candidates know that every question comes. fumbles can be costly. >> after tonight's debate voters will get a chance to see them square off two more times. >>you can watch tonight debate streaming live on wgntv.com. meantime, a conservative news outlet has re-released video of a speech barack obama gave during his presidentical campaign in 2007. in the speech obama accuses the federal government of failing predominately minority victims of hurricane katrina. local communities were required to come up with matching funds for federal dollars. a policy that was waived for victims of 9-11 in new york and hurricane andrew in florida. >>where is your dollar? makes no sense. tells me that the people down in new orleans they do not care about as much. the speech was covered by the major networks in 2007. obama's remarks are not new but conservatives say his wo
been that the the democrats and particularly obama has had four years to make it better and he failed to do so and the numbers prove it. if things get better in october, that undermines a fundamental aspect of a campaign strategy, and i am not questioning whether or not mitt romney, a whole series of republicans want the economy better. right now it's strategically better if the economy is worse, given that argument for election. >> i don't know how you argue that 114,000 jobs is the economy getting a lot better. >> i'm not saying there is. i'm saying there would be a desire for this to remain and look worse in the weeks leading up. >> let's go to john harwood for the last word on this. >> every out party before an election wants voters to feel things are going badly so they vote for change. that's how it is whether republicans are in power or democrats are in power. >> thank you very much. i greatly appreciate your insight. cleaning up the mess. it took three weeks but governor romney backtracked on the 47% comments. >> now and then you say something that doesn't come out right. in t
billion dollars a year. it is an incoming treatment in place for a hundred years. obama: time to end it. romney: in one year you provided $90 million in breaks to the green energy world. now i like green energy as well, but that is just 50 years of spain with oil and gas are seized and you say exxon and mobil, this $2.8 billion goes largely to small business for drilling operators and so forth. that $2.8 billion is on the table. of course it's on a table. that is not going to survive to get every to 25%. but don't forget it, you put $90 billion, like 50 years worth of breaks into solar and wind to sue under a too fiscal and tesla. you don't pick the winners and losers. you pick the losers. so this is not the kind of policy you want to have. you want to get america energy secure. the topic is you get a deduction for taking a plant overseas. look, i've been in business for 25 years. i have no idea which are talking about. i maybe need to get a new accountant, but the idea that you get a break for shipping jobs overseas is simply not the case. but we do have now is bring in money overseas
revenues from romney's tax proposal would cost $4.8 "t," trillion, over ten years. the obama campaign has already come out with an ad hitting romney on his $5 trillion lie. i'm joined tonight by david k. johnston, pulitzer prize winning columnist and author of "the fine print: how big companies use plain english to rob you blind." david k., glad to have you with us tonight. >> thank you, ed. >> after last night, do you have a better grip, a better idea of what romney's tax plan is all about? >> no, because he's never been clear about it. as you showed, he's, on the one hand, saying i'll cut everybody's rates 20% which works out over the next 10 years to about $5 trillion. and he says i'll maintain current rates. now, if he's going to not have a $5 trillion tax cut it imply, he sort of hinted at this last night, that he's going take away the deductions you are. he's not going to succeed in reducing the problem by getting rid of big bird, the money to pbs isn't even chicken feed much less big bird feed. the only other project of any size he's identified is amtrak, $1.4 billion a year. we're
. where we've been as a country over the past four years. and what a second term obama administration would look like. and what it would do for middle class americans all over this country. i think we achieved that. i think what we didn't expect is for that mitt romney to show up. i know mitt romney is an aggressive debater, a great debater, in his own words. was one of the things he used as a credential to becoming the republican nominee. we didn't expect him to be aggressively dishonest last night. >> was the president taken by the number of lies? >> well, you know, i think that, you know, today looking back at last night, you saw what the president did on the stump today. called mitt romney out for what he did last night. not just about his $5 trillion tax cut but a number of other things. and, you know, we'll continue doing that. as i was listening to your piece coming into me, and you talked about our ad. we went on the air today. we're going to continue doing it pointing out all the things mitt romney said last night that are basically not true. it's almost as
25 years, i don't know what you're talking about. basically obama was vague last night. but romney came with specifics. jon: cory, you described the debate as being sort of very specific and bordering on wonky but isn't that what people are looking for right now? aren't they looking for specifics and numbers and ideas here? >> i think you're absolutely right about that. always interesting to me tv commentators and others complain how debates and political discourse is boring and turning american people off whether this is exactly the time they should pay close attention. when they do this is when they see the contrast between the two candidates standing on same stage. if you look reports come out this morning, fact checkers, "l.a. times", "wall street journal", "washington post" they're blowing holes in the presentation that governor romney presented last night. saying again, how are you going to pay for deficit reduction? how are you going to pay for the tax cut? how will you create jobs and all of this environment. and still all the things that you want to do. just doesn't add up
this video we have seen before, covered extensively by the media five years ago, when obama first ran for office. those details did not stop the daily caller and some others from asserting the tape would shake up the campaign. >> people ask me whether they thought raves the reason the response was so slow. i said, well, no this administration was color blind in its incompetence. but, but everyone here knows that the disaster and the poverty happened long before the hurricane hit. >> and then the "huffington post" released what they consider their own bombshell tape, showing paul ryan at what his campaign says was on open forum, this was just last year, 2011. ryan's remarks are now being compared to romney's 47% comment. >> the good news is survey after survey, poll after poll, still shows that we are a center-right 70/30 country. 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. >> and republicans are seizing on what vice president joe biden said at a campaign event in north carolina. that set off another war of words. >> ho
every year. we give them an appraisal. it's time to give president obama an appraisal. >> what do you want to hear from romney tonight to actually make that case to make sure accountability is there? >> i think governor romney actually needs to show us the strategy that i know that he has. i don't -- i'm not looking for nuts and bolts, maria. but this is the vision of a chief executive. someone who's going to lead this country. i want to see leadership. i think he'll show us leadership. and i want to see his vision for the future. >> some have suggests the president should ask the governor how long it takes to turn around a distressed situation like the country was four years ago. i mean, would he be changing management at the top at this point? >> in the business world as you know if people don't hit their targets, they move out. and my own opinion here is -- >> we're not hitting our targets. >> we're not hitting our targets in any respect. if you -- you know -- >> but you know what he will say. he will say i was handed a bad hand four years ago. i inherited this. when does it become
important one is that 20 years ago, i became the luckiest man on earth, because michelle obama agreed to marry me, and, so, i just want to wish, sweetie, you happy anniversary and let you know that a year from now, we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. four years ago, we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost, the auto industry was on the brink of collapse. the financial system had frozen up. and because of the resilience and the determination of the american people, we've begun to fight our way back. over the last 30 months, we've seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back. and housing has begun to rise. but we all know that we've still got a lot of work to do. and so, the question here tonight is not where we've been, but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed towards the wealthy and roll back regulations that we'll be better off. i've got a different view. i think we've got to invest in education and training.
horrible year which you can't mram president obama for in totality his first year that he inherited this big mess. now it's down to 7.8%. doesn't that show that he is on the right trajectory and kind of undermining the central argument for you? >> oh, i don't think so. you know, it's like this, candy. if you are getting blown out in a football game but you are scoring field goals once a quarter, you can't point to the three points every quarter and say at least we're scoring some points. we're still getting clobbered. the fact of the matter is the president and joe biden are getting clobbered on policies they put in place. we're nowhere close. i was in wisconsin yesterday. been in ohio practically of other day. i'll tell you what, people in kenosha, wisconsin, and ohio don't feel better off today than they were four years ago, and they don't think this president has been very good at following through on his promises. that's what this is going to come down to, and i'll tell you what, last week you saw the difference. an unfiltered mitt romney and an unfiltered barack obama. you saw
. forced upon states. they could not clean up the rolls for many years. barack obama, acorn's lawyer, is now the president of the united states. how interested he think he is in making sure that his friends don't resort to old bat habits and old patterns of behavior? apparently not at all if you judge by the actions of the air called the justice department's. in conclusion, i don't want to go through 2010. we live in perilous times, both in foreign policy and domestic. the last thing this country needs is another dispute about who won the 2012 election. the last thing we need is for this country to be driven a par with allegations of by the corruption or incompetence in which we don't know who the present electives for weeks and when the president is sworn in, half the country is angry and bitter and perhaps is not even see that person as a legitimate. we can clean up the selection process, even starting now just by observing what goes on in the election, making sure election officials are doing their job, by making sure they know someone is watching for voter fraud. activist groups.
years fighting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the americans people. it has killed jobs. and the best course for health care is to do what we did in my state. craft a plan at the state level that fits the needs of the and then let's focus and get the cost down for people, rather than raising it with a $2500 additional premium. >> mr. president, the argument against repeal? >> well, four years ago when i was running for office i was traveling around and having those same conversations that governor romney talks about. and it wasn't that just small businesses were seeing costs skyrocket and they couldn't get affordable coverage. it wasn't just that this was just the biggest driver of our federal deficit, but it was families who were worried about going bankrupt if they got sick. millions of families all across the country. they had a preexisting condition, they might not be able to get coverage at all. if they did have coverage, insurance companies might impose an arbitrary limit. and so as a consequence, they're paying their premiums, somebody gets really sick, lo and beh
romney? guest: president obama, in his short for years has raised the debt by five trillion dollars. the share of the national debt is $50,000 per person. it is not want to be president obama's generation that will pay it off. it will be myself and fellow students. students are understanding they do not want that. students are supporting iran because he has the plan to ensure when we graduate from college, there is an economy where there is jobs. right now there is not. half recent college graduates are unemployed or underemployed. students go to college to be educated to get a job. i have many friends that are graduating this spring and cannot find jobs, and it is because of the obama economy. host: our lines are open. we do have the mind set aside for those of you that live in ohio. the first call is from cory in columbus. caller: good morning. with president obama instituting more pell grants, what made you think of this as a backdoor draft? students who cannot afford college and of going into the military programs to get an education. guest: well, i think mitt romney in the firs
campaigned for the office and in mr. obama's case, held the office over these last four years, they have talked a lot about each other. but they have not faced each other, man to man, person to person, face to face, on the same stage, as far as i can tell, in eight years. the last time i have a record of them being on the same stage together was a gridiron dinner in 2004 in washington, d.c. these guys have been campaigning against each other by remote for quite some time. seeing them face to face tonight is going to be remarkable. chris, in terms of the way that these guys are doing their last-minute preparations, is the last-minute stuff that they're doing fact or is the last-minute stuff they're doing psychological? >> well, you know, bobby kennedy said to jack kennedy on the way out the door to debate dick nixon, kick him in the balls. you know? sometimes it's just something like that, something like that. that's history, not me talking. and sometimes it's just that kind of sense of, go get 'em! and that can be the thing you need. nixon's guy, on the other hand, said to him, "erase th
the medicare trust fund by eight years, benefits were not affected at all, and ironically, if you repeal obama care, and i have become fond of this term, obama care, if you repeal it, what happens is those seniors right away are going to be paying $600 more in prescription care. they're now going to have to be paying co-pays for basic checkups that can keep them healthier. and the primary beneficiary of that repeal are insurance companies that are estimated to gain billions of dollars back when they aren't making seniors any healthier. and i don't think that's the right approach when it comes to making sure that medicare is stronger over the long term. >> we'll talk about -- specifically about health care in a moment. but do you support the voucher system, governor? >> what i support is no change for current retirees and near-retirees to medicare. and the president supports taking $716 billion out of that program. >> what about the vouchers? >> that's number one. >> all right. >> number two is for people coming along that are young. what i do to make sure that we can keep medicare in place for
. and unfortunately when you look at obama care, the congressional budget office has said it will cost $2,500 a year more than traditional insurance. so it's adding for cost. when the president ran for office he said that by this year he would have brought down the cost of insurance for each family by $2,500 dollars a family. second reason, it cut $716 billion from medicare to pay for it. i want to put that money back in medicare for our seniors. number three, it puts in place an unelected board that's going to tell people ultimately what kind of treatments they can have. i don't like that idea. fourth, there was a survey done of small businesses across the country. said what's been the effect of obama care on your hiring plans and three-quarters of them said it makes us less likely to hire people. i don't know how the president could have come into office facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the americans people. it has killed jobs. an
i would like to make, is 20 years ago, i became the luckyest man on earth because michelle obama married me. i just want you to know, next year we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. four years ago we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. many jobs were lost. the auto industry was on the brink of collapse. because of the resilience and determination of the american people, we have begun to fight our way back. over the last 30 months, we have seen five million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back. housing has begun to rise. the question tonight is not where we have been, but where we are going. governor romney has a perspective that says, if we cut taxes, skew toward the wealthy, and roll back regulations we will be better off. i have a different view. i think we have to invest in education and training. i think it is important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america, that we change our tax code to make sure we are helping small businesses and companies here in the united sta
see another four years in office. michelle obama has won the "family circle" magazine presidential cookie bake-off. the magazine does this every four years for white and dork chocolate chip cookies. peter, you remember we talked about these. she won with 52% of reader's votes beating out ann romney's m&m cookies with 48%. >> john: were they -- >> recipes in the magazine. which one would you rather eat? >> john: she had a white chocolate -- >> white and dark chocolate. >> john: ann romney had m&m. it works itself out all around. that's exciting. do you ever feel like it is too wonky talking about these policy issues? >> no. >> john: good. >> by the way, i was all for ann romney's recipe. >> yeah, you were. >> john: that's because you hate barack obama because you're a racist. you hated michelle's cookies. what's wrong with you? >> it seems fitting that -- >> john: i don't want michelle obama's socialist cookies no. >> that's a painfully accurate accurate -- >> john: michelle obama with her sleeves
to be very tough on obama's record in the economy over the last four years. he will say, barack obama made a lot of promises in 2008. he hasn't kept those promises. they don't worry about their guy being likeable. they say the key is to day on offense. the other battle over the plans for the next four years, that's where obam will be tough on romney saying he wants to give tax cuts to the wealthy and to voucherrize medicare. romney will say he is the defender of the middle class. one thing both sides say this, could get heated tonight. >> we go to jim lehrer of pbs, moderating this debate. >> jim: i'm jim lehrer. i welcome you to the first of the 2012 presidential debates, between president barack obama, the democratic nominee, and former massachusetts governor, mitt romney, the republican nominee. this debate and the next three, two presidential, one vice-presidential, are sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's 90 minutes will be about domestic issues and will follow a format designed by the commission. there will be six roughly 15-minute segments, with two-minute
the obama administration tried to do that the last four years and we have seen ideas from the ronny administration. romney administration. host: how large a role this manufacturing plant in the u.s.? -- does manufacturing play in the u.s.? guest: a lot of people feel like it is is dying industry in america, but take a look at the numbers. the u.s. still the world's largest manufacturer. manufacturing comprises 11.7% of gross domestic product. manufacturing comprises 9% of total u.s. employment. and it is directly employing 10.9 million workers in the u.s. host: we are going to get into the numbers and look at how things like 9% total employment have changed at the last couple of decades. mr. morath, let me ask about the kinds of manufacturing done. surely that has changed the last couple of decades. guest: we have a fairly robust automotive industry, but there are a number of different areas where things have changed and could change further, such as increasing energy production -- oil, gas, refining. host: this chart is from the bureau of labor statistics, a sister agency, but they
the congressman doesn't like the affordable care act and obama, it extends medicare for eight years. it's a safety net. it's important for our seniors. works for our seniors. we ought not become destroying it. quite frankly, you have not stepped forth with ideas on how to make medicare solvent for the future. >> representative rehberg, 30 minutes. >> you don't extend medicare by taking $716 billion out. he said benefits were not going to cut. that's not the issue, the issue is doctors and hospitals will not be fairly reimbursed for seeing seniors. if president obama and senator tester say you will not lose your insurance under the healthcare reform, no, the problem is nobody will be able to give you that insurance. the doctor may not be able to see you. we must put that back by repealing obamacare. if by putting the money back into medicare, we can make it stronger and last longer and begin serious discussions of a bottom-up solution. >> question from tom to senator tester. >> yes senator tester, you frequently referred to as the only working farmer in the u.s. senate. trade issues by montana far
